wow, those rules are a bit ridiculous...

I also think the GC classification is a bit wonky. Its a suit of armor being piloted by a dude, basically the same as a titan, its a vehicle.

The only thing that I can see (I have a habit of devil's advocating) that might be less powerful is that it's ordinance. No direct fire, which means a chance of scatter. It has BS4, but there's still drift involved.

also, rumors have suggested there will be another alternate shoulder-mount weapon, that will be a massive missile array. I can't imagine it being wanted more than the pulse bombard.

Interesting to see how it has the Gargantuan special rules listed with a conspicuous absence of Stomp and Feel No Pain. If that's not just FW being forgetful rules writers, it's a hilarious pile of garbage, but other than that it looks like a pretty solid bit of kit. T9 with 10 wounds is a pain in the ass even with the relatively low Invulnerable.

I've been scouring the rulebook trying to figure out what you're getting at. I see nothing that says ordnance weapons don't reduce scatter by the BS of the firer.

Barrage, on the other hand, when fired indirectly doesn't reduce scatter. Perhaps you were confusing the two?

Probably just me not being very clear.

You still have a chance of 8" of drift by firing ordinance. No direct fire, as in no lazer pew pew right at a target with roll to hit. It's a big pie plate, so you're gonna hurt people, but it's not as efficient at saying 'THAT TARGET MUST DIE' as a wraithknight with its guns.

Erm, it's a 7" blast.

You cannot miss a model on anything larger than a 25mm base even if you roll double 6s for Scatter.

I'm very much digging the 'blort' effect of the fusion eradicator. That pleasant combination of under-killing and over-killing everything you shoot at.

I want to make sure there's no way for the Tau to bootstrap some FNP or some type of healing? I'm blanking, but wanna make sure no one can think of anything.
